The rumored deal came to fruition today, as the Brewers extended Bill Hall. Here are the terms.
2007: 3 + 500k signing bonus
2011: 9.25 (club option)
Hall gets a guaranteed $24 million, and the total possible value of the contract is $32.75 million.
This is a fantastic deal for the Brewers. I’m pumped about the club option in the fifth year, as it could buy out two years of free agency. I wasn’t even sure if they’d be able to buy out one year. Hall’s production was worth $9.25 million last season, and he won’t even make that for five years.
An official celebration…
